2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
250ml on tap at the Plevna’s brewpub in Tampere (great place!) (06.10.2006). Very dark body. Small creamy head. Rather poor in aroma, but some sweet hops can be detected. Java coffe flavour and a pleasant cocoa finish. Flat and dry. Not bad for a dark lager.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught@Pikkulintu, Helsinki) Very dark, reddish brown color with very small but lacy, tanned head. A mild aroma of sweetish malt and licorice. Quite pleasant and complex, sweetish but slightly sour, very malty licorice flavor with rye and toffee hints. Medium to full-bodied, slicky, but quite thick palate with low carbonation. An excellent, tasty and full-bodied dunkel! The aroma is a bit weak, though.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled draught at Panimoravintola Herman, Turku.
Near black with creamy head. Grapefruity, flowery aroma. Fruity, yet very dry. Light- to medium bodied. Some licorice flavour. Salty bitter finish. Really nice hoppy aroma, but the mouthfeel is not very soft.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The best dunkel beer in Finland, and only available in one restaurant called Plevna(located in Tampere, Finland). You never get bored in this beer.

Rather pale and hoppy for the style. Not a bad beer, but not much of a dunkel.
